The Sharpie® marker first appeared in 1964, it was a disposable multi-surface fine point pen filled with black permanent ink. Since then the line has expanded to include nearly every color and is used to embellish almost anything.Yet the oldest, the classic black permanent marker still leads the pack as it gains even more steam as the newest, hottest fashion accessory. Seen on both the runway and the raceway (Sharpie® sponsors NASCAR) the pen and the artists who use them are still going strong.
Lamborghini - The design on the Lamborghini took two weeks to draw and was covered with clear coat. 

Mike Niemann took 22 days and invested $100 in Sharpies to pimp his Miata.

According to Wikipedia Sharpie® claims the ink is not dangerous for use on the skin yet they admit the pens contain: n-propanol, n-butanol, diacetone alcohol and cresol. N-propanol, is often used in cosmetics. The other three, are industrial solvents, chemicals that should not be sniffed, eaten, or put on the skin. As solvents, they penetrate the skin and fingernails and can enter the bloodstream.
